    Height and weight data at March 2021 banzuke date

    Maybe Enho's weight is just a typo? He was 92kg back in January, but certainly gained a few kilos for March.

    Inside Japan’s Sumo World

    I haven't watched the video yet, but the Tachiai team did not enjoy it: I'll watch it sometime this weekend for myself just because I watch anything I can find about sumo!

    East vs West Haru 2021

    Arigato @WAKATAKE for the game. I will train hard and do my best in May!

    Kakuryu to Retire

    I would have liked to watch one more ring appearance as well. Now, I’m just going to keep my fingers crossed we get to see Hokuho one last time. I’m glad I saw him both days this tournament, but I hope he gets to properly say goodbye in the ring in July. Hakuho, Haramafuji, and Kakuryu were all Yokozuna when I started watching. It’s bittersweet to watch them all retire, but I’m excited to see what’s next for Kakuryu.

    March basho 2021

    That’s what I’m rooting for! Tobizaru has been very exciting this basho. He has a rapidly growing following based on his personality. I really want to see him do well.

    March basho 2021

    I didn't notice how he hurt it during the replay. He was definitely having difficulty putting weight on it after the bout though. Hopefully he can just shake it off.

    Kakuryu to Retire

    I'm glad he made the decision. It had to be difficult for him as it is for anyone nearing the end of a long career. It was time though.

    Rikishi Status - 2021 Haru Basho

    I hope Endo is able to heal and come back strong in May. He had some good momentum behind him the last few days.

    Rikishi Status - 2021 Haru Basho

    I’m glad I watched day 1 live and saw his dohyo-iri. Can’t be many more of those left now. I thought he looked good day 2, but did appear to have some pain when kneeling to collect his checks. I don’t like it, but not totally surprising.

    March basho 2021

    Fortunes change so fast and I love that about Sumo. Remember last July when Kotoshoho was the hot new prodigy? That same basho was a complete disaster for Onosho. Now Kotoshoho looks like he’s falling down to Juryo and Onosho is up near the top ranks of Sumo.

    East vs West Haru 2021

    Well, I'm certainly not part of the majority. I like being an individual......that's my excuse for my poor day 1 choices.
